In addition to the resources outlined for all GSE students on our general resources page, there are also a variety of resources available specifically for PhD students from ConnectED, VPGE, BEAM, and other campus colleagues, outlined below.
Packets include resume, cover letter and teaching or research statements from previous GSE PhD students. Log into the EdCareers Database, click on the document library and search for PHD job packet.
If you are a GSE PhD student on the job market, you can post your profile, CV/resume, and website on the EdCareers website.
Offered by VPGE, the year-long Preparing Future Professors program enables students to gain a deeper understanding of faculty roles at different institutions, align your own skills and aspirations with the faculty job market, benefit from the experience of your faculty mentor, and of your peers and their mentors, be better prepared to launch your own faculty job search, is meant to fill that learning gap.
Many GSE PhD graduates pursue a postdoctoral scholar position upon finishing but may not know where to turn for learning about the policies and procedures of a postdoc appointment. Stanford's Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) is primarily responsible for: review and approval of all postdoctoral scholar appointments at Stanford; development of policies and procedures affecting postdoctoral scholars and their services at Stanford, including salary setting and regular funding and compensation audits.
